After the overture to Humperdinck's opera, the curtain rises on Hansel and Gretel in their humble home ; they are romping and singing when their mother returns to find them neglecting the tasks she had set them. She packs them off to the woods to gather berries, and no sooner have they gone then the father comes home; he has had a lucky day selling his brooms. When lie hears where the children are, he is horrified, and soon makes his wife share in his terror ; a witch, he tells her, lives in the wood, who eats little children. They rush off together in search of Hansel and Gretel.
Act II is in the wood where the children have lost their way. In answer to their prayer, as they lie down to sleep, angels come down from on high to guard them.
In the third Act we meet the witch, and hear of her enchantments. But Hansel's courage and Gretel's nimble wits are too much for her, and in the end she is baked in her own oven, and the story ends happily ; the children are found by their father and mother, and their thanksgiving is joined in by all the other little ones they have released by breaking the witch's spell.

English Light Music
Sir Frederic Cowen can look back on a very busy career, in the course of which he has done more for British music than could possibly be set down in one of these columns. From his eleventh year, when he gave his first pianoforte recital, until, not very long ago, he retired to at least partial and very well-earned quietude, he has been ceaselessly active in the best interests of music as a whole, and especially of the music of his own country.
Sir Frederic has been conductor, too, of the Hallé Orchestra, the Liverpool Philharmonic, the Bradford Permanent Orchestra, the Scottish Orchestra, the Handel Festivals, besides several of the big provincial festivals, and there, too, he has given every encouragement to his fellow-countrymen. The list of his own music is an imposing one, including, as it does, four operas, as well as many smaller stage pieces, oratorios, cantatas, symphonies, overtures, concertos and shorter pieces and songs.

The Story of a Dancer
This play has been specially written for the microphone and will be produced tonight for the first time. It concerns ballets and ballet dancing and two girls who think they are friends. But jealousy makes one of them a snake in the grass, .and the other never knows it-until too late.
The story begins with a ballet class given on the stage of the Empress Theatre, London, ten years ago. Effie, the ballet mistress, tells the girls that the famous dancers Kasovitch and Lizberta are coming to see them dance. The best of them is to be chosen to understudy Lizberta on a world tour, and as Lizberta is to leave halfway through it, it can only mean for the understudy fame.
Listeners will hear how this starts both girls on their different roads to success. Their lives and adventures are told in this colourful and dramatic play which leads up to a moving denouement.
This play was broadcast in the Regional programme last night

The Co-operative Value of the League
The League of Nations provides a variety of machinery for the pacific settlement of disputes between Members. This is effected partly by the opportunities provided by the League for discussion of the problems involved, and partly by the work of the Per-.
.manent Court of International Justice at the Hague. Mr. Vernon Bartlett needs no introduction to listeners. His work from 1922-32, as London Director of the League of Nations, qualifies him more particularly to talk on this subject.
